Asscastle revolves around the homoesexual adventures of a girl named "Asscastle", after being kicked out of her home by her wicked step mother she meets the "Alleged" ghost of Bob Saget, the two set off on gay adventures taking place in the ghostzone. Via a series of events Asscastle eventually finds out she died during this adventure though she is quickly revived and returned back into the word of the living with the sole thought of probably committing suicide.
Background and Reception
Asscastle was originally going to be more blatantly pornographic until the comic started to gain popularity online, at which point the smut factor of the comic was limited and more "ironic distance" was added. The comic is also one of Lamezone's most popular, and is often cited as helping people cope with or come to terms with their sexuality and/or identity. Cate describes the comic as “hero’s journey road trip disney movie, but about blowjobs”, and has stated that it has not aged well as a comic but appreciates the impact it has had on on its readers.
Asscastle, the main character, is a gay, whose gayness is more blatant throughout the adventure. She's canon trans, Cate said so on tumblr
She seems to always be pushed around by basically everyone and tends to believe anything she's told.
"Man, I came to terms with my homosexuality back in the handjob forest"
Alleged ghost of Bob Saget
Asscastle's ghost partner throughout the adventure, he is a resident in ghost zone and seems to know his way around the area. He's pretty much a jerk and planned on taking Asscastle's place in the realm of the living.
"What kind of a dick says no to a ghost."
3 wicked Stepmothers
After the unmourned death of Asscastle's mother she has arrived. They disprove of Asscastle's gay fetishes and don't hesitate to quickly kick her out of the home.
